The latter half of the weekend sees normality return

Tropical Cyclone Ita has headed far south, bringing rain to Mackay today. Blue skies have returned to Cairns, and I spent some time this afternoon at the Bar and Grill (sitting under the new "skylight") and then the beach while I read. The erosion isn't as bad as I had expected, though we have lost a lot of sand.

The waves are much reduced, though still a little more than usual. I noticed two guys around 20 years old trying to ride boogie boards, and hooting with delight as they got 3 or 4 meter rides. Maybe they should have been there yesterday.

  1. That doesn't look too bad really. Esplanade near Muddies didn't make it up near king tide levels from earlier in the year. Cairns gets lucky again?!?
